Fitzgerald, Ella - One For My Baby (And One More For The Road) Lyrics




It's quarter to three, there's no one in the place
Except you and me
So set 'em' up joe, I got a little story
I think you should know
We're drinking my friend, to the end
Of a brief episode
Make it one for my baby
And one more for the road
I know the routine, put another nickel
In the machine
I feel kind of bad, can't you make the music
Easy and sad
I could tell you a lot, but it's not
In a gentleman's code
Make it one for my baby

And one more for the road
You'd never know it, but buddy I'm a kind of poet
And I've got a lot of things I'd like to say
And if I'm gloomy, please listen to me
Till it's talked away
Well that's how it goes, and joe I know your gettin'
Anxious to close
Thanks for the cheer
I hope you didn't mind
My bending your ear
But this torch that I found, it's gotta be drowned
Or it's gonna explode
Make it one for my baby
And one more for the road

    There's nothing in the world quite like the sound of Ella's voice. ❤

  2. Nick Christensen

    Jesus, no matter who or how many other versions I listen to, I always come back to Ella. Nobody can touch her.

  3. Duska Woods

    Unmatchable Ella, she knew how to sing/feel the song.

    What a beautiful voice..Could even be better than Franks version!

    ELLA is EVEREST; all the rest are ant hills by comparison.

    Lovely restrained, bluesy piano accompaniment adding a lot to the total impact. Ella superb, of course. Does anyone know who the pianist is?
